Arizona is home to the jaw-dropping Grand Canyon, crazy desert wildlife, and very hot summers.
Superbly diverse landscapes, delicious cuisine, and the most genuine people, life in North Carolina is without a doubt absolute bliss. Residents live by their state’s motto, “Esse quam videri” meaning “to be, rather than to seem”. We couldn’t agree more; North Carolina doesn’t just seem like the best state to live in, it truly is! Here are just a few reasons why we love living in NC:
If there was ever a good reason to get out of bed before daylight (and there are very few) it’s to experience the breathtaking views of a Carolina sunrise at the beach.
Where else is this possible?! Admiring the morning light with your toes buried in the crisp sand to then watching that same sun retreat as you dangle your feet over the edge of a mountain. These indigenous landscapes are distinct to NC.
That’s right, 365 days of pure foot freedom! This depends of course on the region of North Carolina, but for the most part, temperatures along the coastline don’t sink low enough for frostbite.
Standing out from all other southern cuisine, is the perfected North Carolina BBQ. There’s a reason restaurants across the world refer to their BBQ as “Carolina-style”, we made it best! It’s more than a mouth watering meal, BBQ is a cultural tradition in the state. The annual Lexington Barbecue Festival brings together more than 160,000 people for good music, games, and the best BBQ in the world.
There’s a reason North Carolinians are such kind and upbeat people, they live in the ultimate vacation spot! From outdoor adventures in the Blue Ridge Mountains, to ski resorts, to lounging on the beach, NC provides accessible vacations for everyone without needing the extra travel time!
North Carolina is a fisherman’s dream. More than 300 miles of Atlantic coast, cold mountain streams, 57 lakes, and countless local ponds lure both fish and anglers to NC waters.
It’s true, some say it’s in the water but here in NC we know it’s all about the sweet tea! Take away the tea, and you’re still left with some of the most polite and kind people in the country.
